Some New Projects

It’s a start… :-)


As a side note, I have been experiencing a very large and quick battery drain on my Android Phone which is at OS 4.4.2 (?) I did some looking around and noticed this is a relatively common problem. Many suggested causes and solution and one or 2 threads mentioned possibly the SD card. I had been running a couple of Apps through the SD card, one in particular, a photo App started running very very sluggishly. I removed any Apps using the my SD card and lo and behold problem fixed. I still use the SD card for storage but not for any Apps! Hope this helps…

Happy New Year 2017

2017 and beyond!

I think this is the year I return to more woodworking. It’s been roughly 10 years since I really produced cabinets, tables, clocks, shelving, etc. etc. etc., it’s time again…

In 2016, I sold every last woodworking item I had squirreled away. A few projects from 12 years ago came back to be fine tuned and spruced up for their collectors. I also took on a few successful commissions last year!

First Quarter 2016 Year of the Monkey

Happy Mother's Day 2016

Not really much to report to this date. Lot’s of odd things happening so far in 2016, details may follow. Going on 11 years at 826 W 36th St, hard to believe. Seems like every single significant person in my life was born in the Year of the Monkey!

Opening Reception Dougherty’s Baltimore

Join me at Dougherty’s

Art Clocks by Rick Santiago

I rarely do shows or exhibits outside of the Art Under Ground Studio or the Pearl Gallery anymore, but Dougherty’s is a great place located in the Mt Vernon area, close to the Meyerhoff.  Also, it was my first dinner out when I moved to Charm City (the 1st time around), the Circle is now complete…

Still working with Hollow Core Doors, Canvas and Acrylics using subtractive and additive sculptural techniques.  I’ll have at least one textured piece and hopefully a couple of the Crimped Canvas pieces.

  • Dougherty’s
  • Thursday June 5, 2014
  • 7:00 – 9:00
  • Refreshments Served: Wine and Cheese +
  • Live Irish Music during Reception

Summer Whites

Series a White Fabric Pieces on Wood Panel
Going back to Fabric Textured Pieces for a spell, probably will make a few more of these in varying sizes.  These are 19 x 15, canvas wrapped wood, mixed media and acrylics.  Originally, these were going to be clocks, but they turned out too nice/pretty to start drilling holes into them, maybe later.

Resolute Fearlessness

Art by Rick Santiago
Starting to work on larger pieces, this one 28 x 36.  This size really lends itself to the texturing, scale of piece to texture is just about right.  I’m also using a “dry” texture medium rather than the premixed, seems to work better and sets up a more dense texture.  Three basic colors used; black with variations of a white and green… I like this one!
